BJP rejects reports that it favoured 11 state polls together | India News

NEW DELHI: The BJP on Tuesday asserted that it was in favour of holding simultaneous elections with consensus among different stakeholders and in accordance with law, and rejected reports that it considered conducting assembly polls in 11 states along with the next Lok Sabha election.

BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra rejected media reports that the party was mulling having elections in 11 states together with the Lok Sabha polls as false, and said that any such “misplaced concept should not find place anywhere”.

He also referred to party president Amit Shah‘s letter to the Law Commission yesterday in which he had called upon talking with all stakeholders to evolve a consensus for holding simultaneous assembly and Lok Sabha polls.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) wants it to be done in accordance with law and with consensus, he said.
